Here's me and my Funduro at a cross country rally in Australia called the Condo 750, this is at the end of 720 km of racing and 200 km of transports, I saw the finish line and completely missed the last caution in the roadbook, hence the jump.

They look pretty cool!
How much?

I also would like to see a pic of front of the bike and a closer look of the aux lights mounts.

Thanks,

I have since shortened the bolts that hold the lights on so they don't stick out so much and plasti-dipped the bracket.

Making them was a winter project. Nothing I sell. But if you want the template....

One thing you may want to consider...

Please don't take this the wrong way, because I think you did a great job with the lights and brackets. However, for safety purposes I believe any auxiliary lights - especially ones that might be used during the day - should be farther away from the turn signals.

A buddy of mine had a pair of lights mounted similarly on his 2001 Dakar and whenever I'd ride with him I could never see his turn signals flashing because the nearby auxiliary lights overpowered them. I'm not sure what the effect would be at night because I don't think we ever rode together after dark.



Personally, if I were to put more lights on I'd mount them lower and away from the turn indicators. I'm admittedly a little over cautious after being hit by an SUV while stopped with turn signal on waiting for traffic.
